The ideal solution to CDMB population and management is to use the Asset data discovered by your Enterprise Management tools to populate your CMDB. This insures the data in your CMDB is the same as that seen by the Management tools and hence your Operations staff and you only gather management data once.
This CMDB Population Solution enables System Center 2012 / 2016 users to achieve this panacea and populate their CMDB with the Asset data collected by SCCM and SCOM which is entered automatically into the CMDB via Orchestrator. Previous versions of this Solution have relied upon System Center Service Manager, which has now been removed.
This Orchestrator driven solution delivers a number of fully automated functions:
Populate your CMDB with all New Assets discovered by SCCM and SCOM.
The offering discovers a range of CI types that customers typically wish to populate into their CMDB (see Appendix A of deployment guide), the solution can then be extend to forward any additional data points captured by SCCM and SCOM you want added into your CMDB. Therefore you populate your CMDB with only the data you want and none of the data you don’t.
The solution comes ready built with Runbooks to automate the population of the ServiceNow CMDB but can be configured to populate any other CMDB for which integration exists including:
BMC Remedy ARS and BMC Remedy on Demand.
CA Service Desk Manager.
The Kelverion CMDB Population Solution leverages the Persistent Data Store design philosophy and the Kelverion Orchestrator Integration Packs to provide a scalable and robust solution.
The Automation Solution requires the following Kelverion Integration Packs:
Integration Pack for Data Manipulation.
Integration Pack for Runbook Management.
